Victims who have been injured in an accident caused by another’s recklessness or negligence may be entitled to bring a claim against the at-fault party to recover compensation.

Most personal injury claims are settled quickly. However, when the at-fault party or an insurance company refuses to cooperate or provide adequate compensation, you may be able to take further legal action by filing a personal injury lawsuit.

The experienced Las Vegas personal injury lawyers at Henness & Haight have provided this list of frequently asked questions that may provide you with some answers to your questions about personal injury lawsuits. If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to contact us for a free, no obligation consultation.

Do I Have a Personal Injury Case?

There are three factors that need to be present in order for our attorneys to determine if you have a valid personal injury case that entitles you to compensation. These include:

  • Did you suffer a personal injury?
  • Was your injury caused by another person or entity’s negligence?
  • Did you suffer personal or financial loss?

Our attorneys will conduct a thorough evaluation of your injury and the circumstances surrounding how it occurred. We will then review this information to determine if the three previously mentioned factors were present and if you are entitled to bring a legal claim.

How Much is My Case Worth?

The value of a personal injury claim is determined by several factors, such as the severity of your injury, the medical bills you have incurred and the circumstances surrounding your injury.

Our Las Vegas personal injury attorneys will provide you an accurate estimation of what your case may be worth by reviewing the damages you have suffered, which may include:

  • Past medical bills
  • Future medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity 
  • Pain and suffering

In order to conduct an accurate assessment of your case’s value, we will need to compile definitive evidence that shows the amount of suffering and financial loss you endured because of the at-fault party’s negligence.

What Can Our Attorneys Do for You?

Pursuing a personal injury claim can be very difficult without an experienced attorney on your side. Our Las Vegas personal injury attorneys are ready to help you by providing our services to guide you through the complexities of Nevada’s personal injury laws.

Our attorneys will work to ensure your case accurately reflects the suffering and losses you have experienced to recover the damages you deserve by:

  • Communicating directly on your behalf with any insurers, attorneys and adjusters involved in your case.
  • Thoroughly investigating your accident and injuries and gathering the evidence needed to support your claim.
  • Providing expert witnesses to support your case by testifying about the severity and true cause of your injury.
  • Calculating an accurate estimate of your claim’s value that truly reflects the suffering you endured.

Most personal injury cases are settled before going to trial. However, if you are unsatisfied with the insurance company’s offer, or the at-fault party refuses to cooperate, we are prepared to take your case to trial.

When Should I File a Lawsuit?

You should schedule a consultation with a personal injury lawyer as soon as you can after an injury.

Personal injury victims only have a limited time to file a claim. The legal deadline to bring a personal injury claim is known as the statute of limitations. Nevada has a two-year statute of limitations on personal injury claims that begins the date you were injured.

How Much Does a Personal Injury Attorney Cost?
